Tendonitis & Tendinopathy

Tendinitis is inflammation or irritation of a tendon the thick fibrous cords that attach muscle to bone. The condition causes pain and tenderness just outside a joint.While tendinitis can occur in any of your tendons, it's most common around your shoulders, elbows, wrists, knees and heels.

common causes

  • Although tendinitis can be caused by a sudden injury, the condition is much more likely to stem from the repetition of a particular movement over time. Most people develop tendinitis because their jobs or hobbies involve repetitive motions, which put stress on the tendons.
  • Using proper technique is especially important when performing repetitive sports movements or job-related activities. Improper technique can overload the tendon which can occur, for instance, with tennis elbow and lead to tendinitis.
